How many of you had a hard time accepting your gay identity. I know that I had misgiings about my identity for years. Before I came out I looked down at gay people and thought that being gay was something that was a flaw or disgrace. I grew up in the "bible belt" and it took me years to come to terms with understanding and acceptance that I could not allow myself to be ashamed of being gay anymore. If you feel or have felt the same way, then holla!
I told a recently out man that I loved him BECAUSE he was gay and it totally freaked him out. He was still suffering from internalized homophobia and shame. He has only been out a few weeks.
